Even things that go bump in the night needs protection

And now to another wonderful sci-fi show (yes we do love sci-fi here at schmear.me). Sanctuary is a show for us sci-fi lovers that just keeps getting better and better with every episode. The Sanctuary is a global network of safehouses for abnormals (think monsters and other mythical creatures). Some are in need of protection and some needs to be locked up for our protection. Dr. Helen Magnus (played by Amanda Tapping from Stargate SG-1), her daughter Ashley (Emilie Ullerup),  Dr. Will Zimmerman (Robin Dunne), a forensic psychiatrist, and the others  has their hand full trying to track down abnormals to protect and study.  As one might suspect, there are people in the world with other plans for the abnormals.

The first season started a little slow but by the end of season one it was almost impossible to wait for the next episode, not to mention the next season. Season two started with a full on war between the Sanctuary and the Kabal (evil group set on world domination) and just keeps getting better. My favourite episode so far is easy “Pavor Nocturnus” (se02ep05). In this episode Magnus wakes up in a post-apocalyptic world where most of mankind has turned into cannibalistic monsters. Loved it!

What also sets Sanctuary apart from other schmears is the new techniques and technology they use. The series is shoot extensivley on green screen, with virtual sets and awesome visual effects. Sanctuary received a Primetime Emmy nomination this year for Outstanding Special Visual Effects for a Series.

Sanctuary is a feast for sci-fi lovers and I’m sure others can enjoy it to. It’s always exciting and funny. Visit the shows website to learn more and most importantly watch Sanctuary! You won’t regret it!
